DOG TALK, Nov. 10, 2012

This has been one of those weeks…and it’s only Sunday! We’ve been on deadline for a book revision so this week’s DOG TALK post completely slipped by us. The good news, though, is that you can always listen to any of  Tracie Hotchner’s weekly DOG TALK® radio show through podcast!

  •  Tracie learns about the proven importance of supplementing omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil every single day in your pet’s bowl, and how to determine the right amount for your dogs and cats, from Erin Hay at Nordic Naturals, which has created capsules and an eye dropper cap to allow you to portion out the correct serving of their triple-filtered ecologically responsible fish oil for cats or dogs (anyone can write to Erin with questions about their own pets’ needs).
  • Tracie talks about the Spoiled Rotten “club” you can join to have a box of top-notch Made in America treats and toys delivered to you every month from (see particulars below) and discusses with John Gigliotti, the owner of Whole Life Pet (which was in the debut sold-out Spoiled Rotten box) why people seem more concerned about how and where their dog’s food and toys come from, than they are their own children’s.
  • Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins discusses the all natural pheromone product Adaptil for dogs and how it works scientifically like a “Linus blanket” to calm and soothe dogs – from new puppies to old dogs having “senior moments” (she’ll be back soon to describe how Feliway works for cats emotional states to de-stress kitties).

Feature of the Week

  •  Check out the Spoiled Rotten club!!  (Admit it- your pets are spoiled rotten – and you’re proud of it! So why not put your money where your mouth is and sign up for the once-a-month-Christmas-in-a-box from  It’s a “club” you can join to have a box of top-notch treats and toys delivered to you every month.  There’s about $40 worth of goodies in every box, and it only costs $24.99 per month (shipped free) so there is no way to go wrong.  It’s a great way to discover new and exciting products (and what your pets might not love, will make great holiday gifts for friends, who will be thrilled you “bought” their pets the latest & greatest!)

This is one of two radio shows by pet author and canine nutrition expert Tracie Hotchner, who also hosts CAT CHAT® every Wednesday on Martha Stewart Living Radio on Sirius/XM Satellite.
